Opening Arguments

RIP, Maggie

Guess this is my day for clips. Margaret Thatcher has died, and dammit anyway. What can I say about somebody I thought enough of to name one of my cats after? There are tons of Thatcher clips I could post, but I like this one, in which she gives the socialists in Parliament a tongue-lashing over the so-called "income gap" that the liberals in this country still can't get over.

In an interview, Mrs. Thatcher remarked that "Socialist governments traditionally make a financial mess.  They always run out of other people's money.  It's quite a characteristic of them."

President Obama should take heed.

At least Cher's still alive.

A hashtag on Twitter was supposed to be read as Now Thatcher Is Dead, but was interpreted by some as Now That Cher Is Dead.
